Poetic Narratives

“From These Roots Up is book of poetry that delivers with heart-wrenching honesty. Kiana Davis tells her story and the stories of so many others. Through powerful vignettes of what if feels like to grow up with the odds stacked against you and still become the success you always knew you would be, Davis invites others into her world of pain and triumph.”  It’s a must read for young people and all others who need inspiration and hope!

— Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz, Associate Professor, Teachers College, Columbia University
